Bryson Tiller, Desiigner, Lil Yachty and More Tops Forbes’ 2017 Hip-Hop Cash Princes List
Forbes has been counting the pockets of top hip-hop executives in music with their annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings List. Now the business publication has issued their inaugural Hip-Hop Cash Princes List.
This tally focuses on the youngest rap and R&B superstars who are the top earners in their field. Among the leading artists who grace the list are Bryson Tiller, Desiigner and Lil Yachty.
For Tiller, the 23-year-old R&B singer earned much of monies from the success of his 2015 debut album, TRAPSOUL. According to Forbes, the “Exchange” singer collects $100,000 per show when he tours. Meanwhile, Grammy-nominated rapper Desiigner has been collecting money bags since “Panda” made him a rap superstar. He's currently grossing five figures per night on the road. “It’s just me doing me,” he told Forbes. “Trap is a new fashion of art.”
Lil Yachty and his good friend D.R.A.M. also made the list. Both of them have been collecting a lot of "Broccoli" thanks to their chart-topping hit of the same name. Another R&B singer that graced the list is Canada's own Tory Lanez, and finally, rap newbie Young M.A has been stacking paper thanks to her success of "OOOUUU," which helped her earn monies on the road as well.
